was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an
voting rights in 31 states. the justice department is already going after texas to try to test the supreme court decision. does the speech do you think give any momentum to that cause to expand voting rights since she chose this as her focus? >> i think it does. i think you've had a situation where although the conversation around voting, i.d.s it has been on the left primarily and in small pockets in the civil rights community as well. i think hillary clinton brings it into the mainstream in way it hasn't been before, but i also think this north carolina law could also be a tipping point because the argument that conservatives have made around voter i.d. laws has been voter fraud by this rath of restrictions used and signed into law in north carolina doesn't really address a voter fraud which in some ways snolt a problem in north carolina but the idea you're shutting down voting on a sunday and the item you're eliminate 16 and 17-year-olds the ability to register early, it seems to be capturing a wide swath of folks in north carolina can you see folks really looking at these a
, texas, with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, chris. the military trial for major nadal hasan is under way here at ft. hood a mile or so from the medical readiness unit where three years ago he shot and killed 13 soldiers and wounded 32 others. now in previous hearings, major hasan has tried to lead guilty to the charges but because this case involves the death penalty, it has to go through this article 32 court-martial hearing. hasan has elected to represent himself which now presents the bizarre opportunity for major hasan to actually cross-examine some of the people he allegedly shot. one of those is sergeant alonzo lu lunsford who told us he is looking forward to talk to the man who tried to kill him. here is what he had to say. >> i will not show fear in the face of an enemy because the man who shot me, major hasan is the man who going to be cross-examining me and that is a huge challenge. >> reporter: sergeant lundford is the lead witness in this case after opening statements begin this afternoon. opening statements are underway right now. lunsford will testi

of texas born in calgary, canada. the tea party loves him, given the controversy over mr. obama's birth certificate and speculation cruz is running for president, this probably had to come up eventually. this is the birth certificate. his father born in cuba, his mom in delaware. cruz issued a statement saying, quote, because my mother was a u.s. citizen born in delaware, i was a u.s. citizen by birth. i may technically have dual citizenship. if that's true, i will denounce canadian citizenship, nothing against canada. but i am an american by birth and as a u.s. senator, i believe i should be only an american. a person born outside of the united states and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the united states who resided in the united states. when obama was asked about cruz's eligibility, trump said perhaps not. it came up this morning. >> under no circumstances will i vote for a continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. >> reporter: cruz is a 2016 star already, won a conservative straw poll in denver recently, and this citizenship issue
a shot at getting elected as the next governor of texas. dylan byers, media critic for politico will be here to talk about "the washington post" purchase and michael, democratic strategist will take a look at the kentucky race and others. but first... >> announcer: this is the "full court press." >> here's what's making news. america's children are slimming down. for the first time in decades, we can say our children are not getting fatter. a study from the cdc that examined the nation's preschoolers found in 18 states, the obesity rate is actually falling. that's the good news. the bad news is the obesity rate held steady in do states. some of the states, ten states overall were examined due to the way data is collected. but a lot of people are crediting michelle obama's let's move campaign for this good news. it certainly helps keep the weight off. >> bill: she's got to get some credit for that. and just raising awareness of the problem. >> absolutely. that's the good news. >> bill: a lot of republicans are beating up on her saying this is silly. no, this is a serious problem.
attorney general of california, governor of maryland, from texas, and locally, there is a great guy, a commissioner of california. these are all candidates who will be speaking to racial and economic justice. >> all the candidates you mentioned were democratic candidates. caller: that is my party. correct. >> thanks for calling. susan is on our independent line. who do you like there out there as a future independent. caller: the only one who has been honest is rand paul. also, his father, ron paul. what a combination. only has been honest in the things that have been brought up and giving credit where credit is due and saying, if we want to change anything, we have to go to congress. they are the only ones i have heard for the last years that have been honest. so, that is just my opinion. >> senator rand paul is on your screen. critical today of president obama's decision to postpone the military exercise with egypt, making the announcement earlier. we will show you the president's comments later on in the headline. they write senator paul says the law is very clear. "mr. president
was wounded in an automobile driving into the downtown dallas along with the governor of texas. they have been taken to the hospital where their condition as yet unknown. we haven't been told their condition at dallas and a downtown hotel room a group has been gathered to hear president kennedy awaiting his arrival. let's head down there now where we are on the air. >> as you can imagine there are many stories that are coming in to the actual condition of the president. one is that he is dead. this cannot be confirmed. another is that the governor is in the operating room. this we have not confirmed. the president was whisked from the scene of the attempted assassination or assassination, depending upon his condition this hour to the hospital, and the president undoubtedly in the emergency room at the hospital would be on the first floor of the apartment. we are awaiting something more officials that is of course difficult certainly to go on the reports back at the cbs newsroom in new york. we have just been advised of dallas the diffusions are being governed to president kennedy. let us recal
military response. we have the very latest. plus, don't mess with texas. despite a new lawsuit, senator john cornyn says they are way out of line when it comes to the state's new voter id law. he joins us live. and a rising baseball star and world war ii veteran killed and in each case the suspects are black teenagers. how the case has been playing in the mainstream media. and the running of the bulls right here in the u.s. i'm shannon bream. we start right now. amid the administration's growing belief that the syrian government has used chemical weapons against civilians, president obama has asked the department of defense to prepare a variety of military options in response to the situation in syria. at least two senators are also calling for military action. elizabeth prann is following the latest on that. >> hi, shan n no. president obama and the international community has said the damage has been done. this as they agreed to allow inspectors to the outskirts of the city of damascus where the alleged chemical weapons were deployed. a senior u.s. official says it leads to a lack of
arizona and texas, and arizona there have been significant demographic shifts that have identified opportunities to begin likely did in colorado and virginia to turn states that were decidedly red to purple and then eventually to blue. we are going to do that through aggressive voter registration efforts. we are going to talk about the democratic agenda, making sure hold republicans accountable. >> you were talking about holding republicans accountable. intensive a message for 2014, what case can they make that they should be taking control of the house. can they make the argument that you have done anything to move congress toward a positive resolution? >> president obama and congressional democrats have been trying to make sure that voters have two distinct choices. they clearly chose president obama and democrats. they want to continue to rebuild this economy from the middle class out. they want to make sure when it comes to housing everybody has an opportunity to live the american gene and have a safe and secure roof over their heads. they want access to affordable healthcare.
by mail. attorney general eric holder has his sights set on the texas voter i.d. law. holder said over the weekend, the struggle must and will go on in the cause for our nation's quest for justice until every eligible american has the chance to enter -- exercise his or her right to vote. texans are fighting back. >> this is deeply depressing to see the chief law enforcement officer in the country use partisan politics and that's all it is, to drive a wedge between americans based on race and ethnicity. it's really sad because we have come a long way. obviously we've elected barack obama president of the united states. >> the senator suggests much of this push is about a lame duck administration trying to turn texas into a blue state. arthel: so is there danger if it's interpreted as republicans trying to restrict voting? >> there are certainly some people who think so. virginia, arkansas, tennessee and north dakota have enacted new voter i.d. laws this year and colin powell is among those saying that voting will make it more difficult and immediately turn off voters the g.o.p. needs.
. texas is a lot different in make up than new jersey. in new jersey democratic registration far outnumbers republican. the fact that he's doing so well as a soon-to-be governor up for reelection proves he is able in an area now in our country where we're seeking bi-partisanship, he's been able to do it with a record of having a senate and an assembly of democratic leadership as governor. he's been able to lead democrats as well, so this is a strength of chris christie's, not a weakness. > weakness. >> eric: speaking of democrats, hillary clinton. what do you prognosticate a chris christie-hilllhillary clin battle will be like. >> that will not come to fruition because the country is clintoned out. you had a community organizer come out of nowhere and take her in the democratic primary. i think she's much weaker in 2016 than she was in 2008. >> eric: what, joe biden? >> i would pray if joe biden as a republican is their nominee. i don't see joe biden being in contention at all. i think there are other democrats that have yet even to be talked about that like barack obama could sp
>> stephanie: he was pulled over for speeding in texas and had a gun. george zimmerman was stopped for speeding on a highway near dallas. the police -- i love this whole -- they have a police dash cam video. >> yep. >> stephanie: it shows an officer interacting with zimmerman, and letting him go with a warning. she is just lucky -- i just got my new car insurance bill, because i got a speeding ticket twice in the speed trap near my house. i was going 40 or something in a 35. >> yeah. >> stephanie: he is just so awesome -- >> stephanie: okay. you shot an unarmed teenager, okay. go home. have a good night's sleep. >> i think the cop was squared of him. >> stephanie: no, he did tthe douchy thing. he asked him. >> really? >> stephanie: after an unintelligible response, the officer asked nowhere in particular? why did you say that? you didn't see my name, zimmerman replies. [ buzzer ] >> oh, god. he wants to be a star now? >> stephanie: yeah. i'm a star. no. are you clear of warrants and stuff. and zimmerman said, he was clear. he said calm down dude. why don't you slow down for me. the officer says
as voting rights -- violations with what he's done with texas. isn't it? >> so the easy thing for the justice department to do is just be to sue over these measures and say court, you got to stop these. but i think they're going to go for the bigger game in north carolina, just as they have in texas. and what they're going to try to do is say we know the part of the voting rights act that was in effect since 1965 is gone. but what they're trying to do in texas, and what they're going to do in north carolina is say to a judge we still need to force under a different section of the voting rights act but still survive the supreme court decision, we need to require these states to still get approval because there is still discrimination going on. so i think in a couple of weeks, they'll follow the same line in north carolina. >> we saw a lot of outrage from groups. and some of the groups are threatening to sue and other things. but actually on the photo i.d., the public opinion for that is fairly high across the country. that if people ask, is it reasonable to show a piece of -- a
, the justice department filed a lawsuit against the state of texas to block that state's voter i.d. law that went in effect a mere hours after the supreme court's decision essentially gutted the -- in a statement here, eric holder said -- we will not allow the supreme court's recent decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights. in fact, within hours of that comment, senator john cornyn of texas, who is one partisan paul, issued his own statement, saying -- facts mean little to a justice department bent on inserting itself into the sovereign affairs of texas and a lame-duck administration in trying to turn our state blue. excuse me, senator. lame duck? we are six months into a four-year presidential term, but that's the way they want us to think, isn't it, clarence? they've been really good at it. make people think that obama is on his way out the door. >> sure. the irony of this is, as was mentioned earlier, while the republicans have put so much attention on voter i.d. they had a problem getting white and blue collar male voters to
. >> the justice department, speaking of holder is suing texas over the new voter law. they wrote it's good to see the justice department so emphatically oppose laws that would check minority rights. unfortunately, fighting them is far easier said than done. how much can the department of justice do without the preclearance provision that was struck from the voting rights act? >> they can challenge these provisions, it just gets more difficult. in particular, in texas, which passed a voter i.d. law and redistricting plan last year, and the justice department was able to preemptively block them under the law as it was written. the supreme court struck down that part of the law and so the justice department is now returning using another section of the law saying we're still going to go after these provisi provisions, but right now they have to fight the law which is already in place, which is more difficult. they basically have one tool in their tool chest that's been removed. they still are showing it is a priority. >> i want to switch gears to this talk about impeachment. i want to play what sena
a significant role as we should. texas will be one of them. >> you will be behind wendy davis. >> will be in texas in a bigger way. >> you mentioned secretary perez and your expectations. if you're looking at -- to join a fight instances that he will face that tell us about how we will proceed. what are you looking for. >> and he is being helpful now. he's in the middle of the talk on health care. he is the one solving the problems we have in health care. very important, very instrumental. we will see what he does on classification, and misclassification. on prevailing wage. things like that. he has his record. his record shows he has been willing to stand up and support working people. we believe he will continue to do that. i think he will be more aggressive. i think he will be more focused. his background is such that he understands a little more effectively how to enforce laws and how to run a large agency. the department of labor is very large. i think he has his experience, and his history will serve him well in this job and allow him to be a very effective secretary of
will take it down another 0.15%. we are north of the 13th largest economy in the world in texas, so you have to remain competitive. if you want people to invest more, if you allow people to keep more of their money, we know as conservatives, they will either suspended or save it and invest, which is good for the county. we overhauled our worker compensation system. we have some of the highest rates in the nation as well as in the region. we revamped our system, moving from an antiquated system, moving to a new system that will essentially safe employers, people who create jobs, 15% to 20% on their premiums every year. people always say, stop talking about social problems. i think that is nonsense. you take every social issue known to man, whether it is high incarceration rates, drug and substance abuse issues -- i think they can all be traced to one key ingredient, and that is the breakdown of the family unit. this year in oklahoma we said we would do things to promote the family, going on a campaign to express why strong families are not as good for society, they are good for the economy, a
30 in fort hood, texas. dozens of witnesses say hassan is the shooter. death penalty cases are rare. in fact no active duty soldier has been executed since 1961. a jury of 13 army officers will have to unanimously convicted him but even then, 11 of the last death sentences handed down by military juries in the last 30 years have been overturned. hassan will be developing himself. he said he committed the mass shooting in defense of taliban terrorists but they characterize as workplace violence. as a result victims of the rampage can not be awarded federal benefits nor can victims receive combatant status. one was shot six times at fort hood. >> i think the act of the government is trying to downplay this all along. hassan has openly admitting makes me angry and makes me guess dusted. >> even if he is convicted, there are likely years if not decades of appeals ahead. >> gregg: thanks very much. we do want to take a moment to remember the 13 men and women who lost their lives that terrible day at fort hood. we actually officiallyers first heard two days, saturday november 7th, 2009. f
from won. we have the latest developments. texas senator holds duel citizenship here and another country. now the texas republican says he plans to renounce one of them and get what? it's not the united states. also a new twist in the aaron hernandez murder case. what police found that could mean more trouble for the former nfl player. patti ann: police in los angeles are deciding if they'll bring charges against the teen who got stuck in a chimney. he had to be rescued yesterday. he may have been trying to rob the house. but he only got about 10 feet down when he got stuck in the flue. once rescuers freed him, he started hamming it up for the cameras. >> i asked him his age and he told me he was old enough. so he's got a bit of an attitude and he's smiling for the cameras. he thinks this is a game. it's not a game. >> i don't know what to think. i truly don't know what to think because we know who it is. he's a family friend. >> he wouldn't have done anything to him because he hangs out here from time to time. patti ann: rescuers took the teen to the hospital. he appears to have
has come forward claiming that texas a&m quarterback asked for money to sign autographs. reporting that the heisman trophy winner was paid five figures on for another autograph session, a signing session last year. this is just the latest in a series of off-season incidents for the star football player, making him look like the justin bieber of college ball. senior writer at fox sports. you will be allowed to see him on fox sports one which launches on august 17th. >> absolutely. dagen: i'm psyched. less talk about johnnie football right now and in. is this surprising that this would come out and people would be digging through dirt for him given how he has been behaving? >> it is not surprising that they're digging through dirt to find this. a little surprising that he would actually go through and do this. you know the rules. first freshman to ever win a heisman trophy. but to accept five figures for a couple of autographs, 999 autographs the weekend of the b.c. s national championship game, clearly a violation of rules. like you said, his off-season have been tumultuous. the las
presbyterian university standing by him and exemplifying redemption and forgiveness. this is the state of texas where it's very hard to overcome a preponderance. you have to overcome by a preponderance of the evidence showing insanity. 12 men found him not guilty by reason of insanity 45 plus years ago. who are we to second-judge a jury of his piers and the law in the state of texas. i don't quite understand all the hysteria over. this all i do i do acknowledge it was a horrific crime. >> dr. walsh, trying to put myself in the position of the parents and university and how they feel. as far as i can tell, he has had exemplary life. medication, turned his life around, became a ph.d. like you two gals. he gets his ph.d. >> exactly. >> laura: this is a wild, wild set of facts. and the fact that it's just coming out now is pretty amazing. >> yeah, i'm a little concerned about who did the outing. and while i have great compassion by this man and i'm proud of what he did to turn his life around. mental health is not a perfect science. you know, we can't suddenly say it will never happen again because
in the series and they remain 1 game behind texas in the al west because the rangers beat houston today. the flirt with no hitter for most of the game. get nothing and like it. struck out 15. rob grossman strike 3 off foul tip. no hitter to the eighth. carlos well that ends everything. no hitter. shut out. gone. he gets the win. 2-1 with 15 k. so texas stays 1 up on oak land. at this point adam probably doesn't know who to root for or how long. the a's the rangers. he has been claimed by texas yet again. he was with a most of the year. released august 2nd. he was scooped up because they wanted him except they let him go 3 day later then the the a claim him back on the fifth. well when they needed a roster spot they designated him through seenment and the rangers reclaimed him again today. giants first baseman belt up and down the season up up hay lately and just name the national league player of the week. hits 4 40 last week with 3 double 2 homeers. changed the grip at the plate and seems to be working. >> the perfect photo. winning pose. you know this. lightning bol
